Well almost anyway. Lots of new things continue to arrive for spring. And fun projects keep making themselves known – I keep seeing things and saying “I’ve gotta make that”.
The weird weather means no gardening yet for a while but in preparation for needing small projects that can be finished quickly I have ordered Premier Yarns Home – a new brightly colored dishcloth cotton. April 12th I will teach a class for a round dishcloth that uses short rows. This is a quick project for learning a popular technique.
Then in May I will start emailing a new dishcloth pattern every Monday. Most of these will involve a fun new stitch but I will include some crochet patterns too. You could do the whole summer’s worth of patterns and sew them together into a blanket or just have a bunch of washcloths to give away.
Saturday, April 12th is Adventures in Agriculture day at Lane Agripark (I think its 9-12 or so). This is a fun thing for kids and adults. Help your kids understand where their food and clothing come from, learn about farming and spinning and weaving. Lisa will be there spinning and weaving and knitting. There are kids activities, lots to do and learn.
Yarn Therapy Group is Monday, March 31st, 5pm. Call ahead for reservations and get help for your troubled projects.
Weaving School is April 5th, This class will focus on making lace on your loom. You should have your own loom, and already be able to weave a bit. There are still spots left.
Robin is teaching “How to Read a Crochet Pattern” on Sat April 12th. I hear a lot of folks saying they’d love to make something but can’t understand the pattern. Here’s the class for you.
I am teaching a lace shawl class starting on April 26th. I have a couple of patterns for you to choose from. This is a shawl in any weight yarn you want, since the size can be adjusted as needed. You learn how in class.
I have had a request for a How to Fix Mistakes class….If you are interested in taking this some time in May, please let me know.
Did you know most of my patterns are available on Ravelry? They are, including the newest one for a Modular Baby Blanket.
